1. There is a humongous fire that is still going on in our area. The first picture, while it looks like beautiful, cotton candy clouds in a California sky, is actually smoke from the fire. The second picture is just a small sampling of donations gathered for the firefighters who are risking their lives containing that fire. I am so thankful to have such brave men and women willing to risk their lives to keep us safe, and I am grateful that in a time of need, our community really stepped up ($50,000 in donations!) to show their support.
